Corey Taylor is working on a new solo album. Just last week Slipknot bassist Eliot Lorango shared pictures from the studio with Taylor, and on Saturday Taylor took to social media to share a little more about the project. 

“Musically, it’s harder,” he told fans in a video posted on Twitter. “It’s faster, but there’s still tons of stuff from the first album. So, there’s elements of Slipknot. There’s elements of Stone Sour. There’s elements of CMFT. There’s elements of the stuff that I’ve been doing for years. Just, like, cover-wise or whatever.”

Taylor, who was driving to the studio as he made the video, shared, “All the stuff that I’ve always wanted to do. We’re doing that. Just cranking it up and it all sounds so f***** good that I can’t even describe to you how stoked I am to be starting on this.” 

Finally, he warns fans, “I’m serious as a heart attack. Nobody is ready for what they’re about to hear. But first, we gotta record it.” 

So far there’s no word on when the album will come out. It will be Taylor’s second solo album, following the 2020 release of CMFT.
